  • We were so pleasantly surprised by this museum! In addition to having so many awesome artifacts, there were so many interactive activities that were fun for two adults but that are perfect for kids too. Gotta give a shout out to clean (free) bathrooms and free audio guide! Definitely recommend- we would definitely go back!!
  • Great in depth knowledge on how Brugge became the city it is and reinvented itself after its Golden age. Children (7+9) had a treasure hunt game that they adored.
